Rocky Shepheard—Not only the Creator of The Vegg, but Also an Author and Illustrator!

rockylorgbWho Chains You featured author Rocky Shepheard is not just an author, AND an illustrator, but an inventor too!

Rocky Shepheard loved the rich flavor of eggs. But after learning about the treatment of chickens and the health risks of consuming all that cholesterol, the Pennsylvania native adopted a plant-based diet.

Not wanting to miss out on his favorite food, Rocky set to work on years of research to develop the perfect, all-natural, cholesterolandcrueltyfree egg yolk. After many trials, he developed The Vegg.

If you’re are a lover of The Vegg products, (AND WE ARE!), then you might think this cool invention is enough for any one lifetime.

We agree.

But…Rocky is the creative type. And before he even conceived of The Vegg, he wrote and illustrated a children’s book about a chained dog who escaped and went on an adventure—AND, the book is now into its Second Edition!


The book is called A Doggie Hero is Born, and here’s the synopsis:

“Romp through the wilds on a good old-fashioned adventure with pals Worthless, Sly Fox, and Otto. Worthless (as he’s called by his no-good captor) remains chained to his rickety old doghouse yet longs to be free and loved. His best friends step in and find a way to break his chains, and their quest for a new home takes off. Times get tough, but in the end will they win all the love they are searching for, and just maybe a new name for Worthless?”

Written and illustrated by Rocky Shepheard, this Children’s Action/Adventure is full of both excitement and rich, magnificent illustrations to thrill your audience and teach a lesson in compassion and humane treatment of Man’s Best Friend.

Perfect for all kids, young and old, this story is a wonderful way to educate children at home or in schools.

“This book will lead readers of all ages to more fully understand the true nature of “man’s best friend” with a common-sense, compassionate approach that can change the world for the better.”Dan Piraro, creator of “Bizarro”

Believe us…this is a GREAT children’s book to have on hand to read to your little ones, OR at the local library, OR to the kids at your shelter read to the dogs events.

The story is wonderful, AND we think the illustrations are even better. A Doggie Hero is Born promotes kindness to animals without being preachy, and holds it all within a fantasy story.

Here’s just one of our favorite Illustrations from the book:


Ah, so peaceful!

The book is great from kids of all ages, but definitely those in kindergarten through 5th grade will love it.
